Broken Bells like to add a dose of sci-fi levity to their music videos; consider, for example, the intergalactic adventures of their “Holding On For Life” clip. But the band’s new video for “Control” is the first time they’ve gone full-on Fox Mulder with it, patching together footage of crop circles and UFO encounters and editing the spacecraft from the cover of their After The Disco album into old film clips. There are also some images of James Mercer and Danger Mouse performing, if you care about that sort of thing. Watch the video below.
After The Disco is out now on Columbia.
